Official opening of the Bishops XC course.

Posted on by Bishops Cycling
The cycle Track was built in conjunction with Meurant

Botha who is the convenor of AMArider and the Spur Mountain Bike League. Material was generously donated by parents and ODs. It will be used for regular fixtures throughout the year. The vision is to bring mountain biking to the southern suburbs by building a inter-campus course, the only of its kind in the Western Cape.It was opened on 24 January with an inter school eliminator competition. Paul Roos, SACS and Rondebosch riders were present. Lourens Luus, Ariane Kleynhans and Erik Kleynhans from team RECM did the opening lap.The course consists of predominantly single track with some fun technical sections and cambered turns. It is a lap course approximately 2km long and is open for use by any member of the Bishops family. The more it is used, the better the track will become as it will ‘wear in’. Much of the material is still loose and trail

repairs are underway to fix weak spots that appeared during the recent races.Signage will also appear shortly, including a map of the course for visitors which will be erected at the start point. It should be noted that the course is technically still under construction as we seek to improve and further develop it. Riders should therefore do the first lap cautiously.
